SLK32 brakes on an SLK 320

I am wondering if the SLK32 calipers will bolt up directly to the 320. I understand that the 32 disc is 330 dia and the 320 is 300 which would also require replacement. BTW, I have CLK320 17" rims installed so clearance is not a problem. I also have a wild hair to install the S500/E430 Brembo 4 piston calipers which also use a 330 disc. Don't know how feasable that is though. I know there are big brake kits out there, but they are crazy expensive, and sourcing these other parts off ebay is wayyyy cheaper! Any experience or thoughts on this?

If you're meaning the 32's 4Pot Brembos, Yes, they can bolt straight right on to your 320.

I realize this post is over a year old but I am curious on two points.
How did you end up going?
The second question is why the desire to do this?
I have a stock 320 and it stops really well. In the end tires have as much an influence on stopping than anything. If you lock them up and it slides not much gained.
